K.Noble has released a brand new track entitled, Colorism/I Got You. Hailing from the Southside of Chicago, K. Noble is an artist who has set out to make a change with his discography, and his empowering track Colorism/I Got You is a vital, vibrant dissection of America’s issues with race.
Taken from his recently released debut album Life Is Pain, the single’s beauty lies in its contrasts. Opening with dainty piano keys and Audrey Valentine’s breathtaking falsetto, the ambience swiftly switches to a rolling rhythm and punchy 808’s, with K. Noble’s hard-hitting lyricism adding a thought-provoking edge. Exploring themes within colourism, a prevalent prejudice in the USA that can cause those of similar ethnicities to be treated differently based on their skin colour, the rapper makes a statement with his narratives, using characters to voice his concerns for a society that so desperately needs to change. “Colorism is about the Willie Lynch syndrome which is still prevalent amongst Africans Americans in the black community” he states, and the single, produced by Dylan Graham, is a defiant stand against the issue and one that encompasses K. Noble’s desire to make the world a better place.
Driven by the desire to motivate, inspire, comfort and spread love, K. Noble is a self-described enigma who refuses to be boxed in. Inspired by the likes of Nas, Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar, he fuses his positive energy and outlook on life into his songwriting, producing a powerful immersive experience throughout his repertoire that reflects his unique style. Always aiming to push the boundaries of what is expected and inspire others to have important conversations through music, K. Noble is an artist that is simmering with drive, determination and immeasurable talent.
